How do I get a copy of a tax return prepared with the TurboTax CD/Download software?
Tax returns prepared in the TurboTax CD/download software are stored locally on your computer.
Even if you e-filed, you'll still need to look for your return on your computer or storage device. We don't store TurboTax CD/Download returns on our secure servers like we do with TurboTax Online.
To locate your return, use your computer's Search or Find function, just as you would when looking for any other document. Once located, open it in the same-year version of TurboTax as your return (e.g., open your 2017 return in TurboTax 2017, not the 2016 or 2018 version). From there, you can print a copy of your return.
If you can't find your tax return but you know you filed one, you can also request a copy from the IRS.
